What We Did


The Chelsea Oval, a high-speed parabolic test track at the Chrysler Chelsea Proving Grounds, included reconstruction and repaving the existing track and widening it by 10 feet. The high-tech team and machinery brought to the project, along with the materials manufactured by Ajax, resulted in a project completed on time and exceeding Chrysler’s demanding ride quality and pavement elevation standards.
